Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque
Created and performed entirely by women, Gorilla Tango’s burlesque-infused parodies fog monocles by reimagining pop-cultural sensations through the lens of blush-inducing burlesque. Disrobed robes, boas, and chomping cannonballs sail into the sky during Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque. The long-running show is still staged weekly after igniting Chicago’s parody-centric burlesque boom in October of 2010, which saw thousands of tassel prospectors flood the region. Mario and Luigi, amorously frustrated by their constant pursuit of Princess Toadstool, suddenly begin to see their friends and adversaries alike as alluring, scantily-clad ladies. Hilarity and nudity ensue. As performers gather "coins" (or dollars) from appreciative audience members, they keep a running tally—when a certain number is reached, an alternate ending is unlocked.
Holy Bouncing Boobies! A Batman Burlesque
In this winking take on comic book lore, Batman and Robin must rescue Batgirl from an unusually appealing Riddler. But as the dynamic crime-fighting duo seek out the clues their nemesis has hidden throughout Gotham, they encounter some of their deadliest—and least clothed—foes. Catwoman, Two-Face, and The Penguin all appear to crack wise and slink their way through steamy choreography.
Gorilla Tango Theatre
Gorilla Tango Theatre is committed to hosting colorful, diverse entertainment—though some of their shows involve more clothing than others. Home to Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque, A Nude Hope: A Star Wars Burlesque, and the series of similarly cheeky and geeky shows they inspired, GTT's burlesque series has drawn audiences to its two venues since 2010. There's more to Gorilla Tango than burlesque, though. The theater maintains a flexible rental schedule, welcoming producers to bring improv shows, new plays, and films to life in their welcoming space. Gorilla Tango’s intimate confines host several rows of stadium-style seating, as well as bistro-style tables on the floor where patrons can sip on wine and beer.
